1.~ Pain relief. Do you have a chronic pain issue? Whether it’s your foot, leg, back, neck, shoulders, or arms; massage will do wonders for pain in any and all of those areas. Massage increases blood flow to areas of your body that have decreased circulation to bring much needed fresh nutrients and oxygen to the muscles, thereby decreasing your pain. Regular massage sessions can keep you from constantly taking medications due to the pain severity.
2.~ Increase range of motion. Suffer from frozen shoulder? Do you have limitations on how far you can turn your head one side or the other? Does a knee not allow your leg to fully straighten? These and other limitations in your range of motion can throw your entire body out of alignment, and prevent you from performing normal daily activities. Trigger point massage therapy and some stretching can help get you on your way to your full range of motion.
3.~Improve sleep. Do you toss and turn at night? Do you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t seem to fall back asleep? Insufficient sleep can lead to a world of problems such as: diabetes, obesity and depression. Regular massage therapy sessions can help improve the quality of your sleep because it may affect the delta waves responsible for deep sleep.
4.~Boosts immunity. If you suffer from chronic illnesses such as allergies, or the fact that you seem to catch everything that is going around (flu/cold), massage can boost your immune system. It increases blood and lymph flow through your entire body and filters out all the “junk”. Perhaps you won’t get sick, or the length of time you are sick will be shortened with regular massage sessions.
5.~Manage anxiety/depression. Massage reduces the stress hormone cortisol, and also boosts the release of dopamine and serotonin levels leaving you feeling happier.
